Please join El Museo del Barrio for the closing weekend of the exhibition Raphael Montañez Ortiz – A Contextual Retrospective at El Museo del Barrio!
The day-long celebration will include a panel discussion honoring the impact of artist, educator and founder of El Museo, Raphael Montañez Ortiz, followed by a question-and-answer session.
The program will culminate with a special performance, where Montañez Ortiz will revisit his legendary Explode this Bag action, first staged in London in 1966.
Conceived as a new Paper Bag Destruction Concert, this participatory piece will invite the audience to blow up and burst air-filled paper bags in a cathartic, collective experience.
Las Galerías will remain open until 6 pm to explore El Museo’s on-view exhibition.
